Families, friends, media and more have camped outside the area where these miners were trapped for the last two months.
Its an awesome story just witnessing as we watch CNN giving the world a great coverage of these miners who are already rescued being met by immediate family members or loved ones before being whisked away for further medical checks. It is a story of a lifetime. Many Chileans were seen to be singing a chant of a Hero's Welcome each time the capsule emerged carrying one of the rescued miners. At the time of writing 31 miners have been brought to the surface.
A stunning story indeed. We wish those miners the very best and speedy recovery for those that have fallen ill of some sort due to the confined space and health risks they had encountered whilst in the UNDER-BELLY of the Chilean hills.
Last but not least, well done CNN.com for such great coverage and sharing the stories to every corner of the globe.
